I don't even know how to begin to describe my friend Rosie?
Sweets magician, fairy tale cake princess?
For certain, she is confectionery proprietress of Sweetapolita.
She makes frosting ruffles that make you gasp.
That will widen your eyes in sheer delightment!
Take your breath away.
Swiss Meringue Buttercream ruffles, oh my!

And click here, to make the cake (recipe etc)...
Impressive, ain't it?
Rosie is a wonder-woman.
A mom to two cakelets.
And a confectionery goddess.
(I don't use goddess lightly)
Just to name a few.
Her blog is filled with the delicious cakes she makes (and cookies & cupcakes, + more), and major tips and tricks and recipes for you.
Not to mention magazine quality photos.
Amazing, to say the least.
If you ever want to bake something extra lovely, visit her.
Even if I am not baking, I visit, just to gaze at her edible art creations.
Rosie's posts hold your hand through the entire making process.
You will make treats you never dreamed you could make.
Her frostings have saved me several times, and been so delicious, that I was baffled.
I never knew frosting could taste so so so good.
I want to make this next...
The title alone induces fainting ;)
And what about this?
